Jonathan Pollard has confessed his misdeeds and done his hard time. It's time for him to go back to his spiritual home of Israel. Lets put someone else more deserving in his cell.
The reason Pollard hasn't been let out of jail is that he hasn't yet revealed who else in the U.S. intelligence community was feeding him the ID numbers so he'd know what documents to steal. Pollard always says she's so sorry for what he did. If he were really sorry he'd tell us who his associates were.

Areally good point that gets to the why of the very tight grip we keep on this gentleman.
Let's not forget that Pollard's motivation was money, not love of Israel. He shopped his services around. In one sense, we were lucky that Israel won the bidding war and not China or Russia.
Clearly, Israel will have to continue to ask for his release since he was their agent. But just as clearly, we will continue to say no since he was our traitor. At least until Hillary becomes President and gets a big money offer for his pardon and release. shudder

Yes, and Pollard was getting paid large amounts of money for his treasonous spying. He's lucky he wasn't hanged. He is an AMERICAN traitor, regardless of any ethnic group, and if we don't hold him responsible, we can't hold anyone to blame. If he really wants out, let him start talking. Maybe offer him some money, that seems to work.
